Getting one of these permanent jobs will change my life.

"More people should know about the good work the CPSU is doing, getting one of these permanent jobs will change my life."

A DHS casual worker who had not yet joined the CPSU came into our Canberra office after hearing about the union's win securing around 2,000 permanent jobs for non-ongoing staff.

He was interested in finding out more about how he should go about securing one of them. After having a chat with a CPSU organiser, he was excited to hear these jobs were positions that he could apply for.

He signed up as a member on the spot and noted that, "more people should know about the good work the CPSU is doing" But perhaps the most profound statement was at the end of the conversation when he said "You have no idea – getting one of these permanent jobs will change my life – thank you".
